View Full Version : Determinate Sentence Chart

02-07-2006, 07:37 PM
I have a chart here that I would like to post... I know it helped me a lot... It gives you the exact time that will be served on a determinate sentence when you factor in good time and merit time. It has 2 columns, one for just good time (for prior violent offenders) and one with merit time (for prior non-violent offenders). I will try to attach it here. Let me know if you can see it or PM me and I can email it to you.

there is no merit time etc.-- priors or no priors--you serve 6/7ths-just to make that clear.

Have no idea what the 5/7ths is for-but it isn't for determinate (violent) sentenced felons.

The 5/7 is for merit time if you have no violent offenses (past or present). Everyone gets 1/7 taken off for good time (if you are good) but then if you complete certain requirements and have no violent offenses you get an additional 1/7 taken off which is the 5/7. You're right, it isn't for determinate violent felony offenders. The first column is for violent offenders and the second column is for non-violent felony offenders. It says it on the top of that paper. Sorry if I didn't make it clear. :)

lil, does this mean that if i am serving a 1 1/2 - 3 yr sentence that i will get out after 2years 1 mo 22 days?. if not paroled thanks

so, this chart is for NVO only?

03-19-2006, 09:03 PM
Jen, the first column is for violent felony offenders, the second is for NVO... the difference is that the second column includes merit time which is not offered to VFOs. The first column is good time only...

BUT, this chart is only for determinate sentences only so sorry Cat.. your sentence is an indeterminate sentence so I'm not sure how it would work for you... I think your CR is 2/3 of your time which would be 2 years... but there are ways to get out earlier... programs that you may be eligible for such as CASAT, etc... not sure which you may be eligible for but your counselor will let you know when you go in.

If you didn't get paroled at your merit or inital parole board, you would CR in 2 years. You would still be on parole for the remainder of your sentence (1 year).

someone told me that i would only serve about 9 mo. is that accurate? you have to serve 50% of the lesser?

Nope 9 months is to short. The earliest you would get out is a month or two before the 1 1/2 years. That's if you were to make your merit board. I forget the merit board time line it's either 5/7ths or 7/8ths of your front number. Someone should come along who knows more about that.

I would plan on spending the 1 1/2 years in at the least.

My husband served a 6-18 and he was out in 4 years on work release. I don't know if that helps... maybe you could figure something out with the time he served... But I know it's possible to get out before your minimum...

And this did not include any merit time because he was in the hospital for a sinus infection so he never had enough time to do any programs to qualify for merit time. (He was on the waiting list but they denied him merit because he hadn't completed 2 programs yet).

If you have a specific question about his sentence, just describe the situation and ask what you're confused about, someone will be able to help you.

Does the "5/7" apply for a NON VIOLENT offender of ie. 8-24 years? & Can someone make clear what is the "6/7" and "5/7" What do these numbers stand for?

The New York Prosecutors Training Institute has released CrimeTime to the public via a webbased application.

CrimeTime quickly calculates permissible sentences for New York crimes, taking into account the conviction and the defendant's age and criminal history.
